Poaching reports increase The Wyoming Game and Fish Department attributes a ten percent increase in poaching reports during 1988 to increased publicity given to the "Stop Poaching" program rather than an increase in illegal activity. According to Steve Smith, watercraft safety/special enforcement officer for the Game and Fish in Cheyenne, 210 calls were received through the toll-free "Stop Poaching" telephone line during 1988. Arrests were made, and con- victions were obtained, in 32 of the cases. Fifty people were issued 68 citations, which resulted in total fines of $16,680. Rewards totalling $5,600 were paid to callers by the Wyoming Wildlife Protec- tors Association with the assis- tance of the Game and Fish Department. In 1987, by comparison, 27 cases involving 39 people were closed. Twenty-four citations resulted in $7,975 in fines. Rewards totalled $4,850. Smith credits increased pro- motion of the "Stop Poaching" Reward Program for the in- creased number of cases handled. A new advertising pro- gram featuring key chains, business cards, billboards, radio spots and magazine articles has apparently improv- ed public awareness of the toll-free number, and the need for public assistance. The toll-free number was first implemented in 1980, when 43 cases involving 84 people were closed. In 1981, a record $14,350 in rewards were paid for tips leading to successful prosecution of 67 cases. A record 141 citations resulting in $29,102 in fines issued in 1982 as a result of the "Stop Poach- ing" toll-free telephone line. Those observing game law violations are urged to report the offense by calling 1-800- 442-4331. Remember "Stop Poaching--It's Mutiny on Your Bounty".

Principal Bob Campbell said the water pipe to the sprinklers over the main exit apparently froze up and broke sometime Saturday night. He said custodians spent several hours cleaning up the water in the lobby. The principal said the Northern Wyo. Mental Health to provide ' new treatment program Northern Wyoming Mental Health Center and New Direc- tions of Casper have joined'to provide a unique residential- treatment program for adole- scents with substance abuse problems. New Directions and the State Division of Community Pro- grams designated Northern Wyoming Mental Health Center as the official screening agency for this area. New Directions opened on January 12, 1989 as a residen- tial facility for the treatment of adolescent drug and alcohol abuse. Today, substance abuse is accepted as a disease, the only disease known to man that ruins not only the person afflict- ed, but also the lives of persons close to him. Treatment for young people, ages 13-18, and for their families, is now avail- able through Northern Wyom- ing Mental Health Center and New Directions. Staff at NWMHC with training in diag- nosis and assessment of adoles- cent substance abuse will screen possible admissions to the Casper program. Where necessary, treatment will be provided to the teenager's family during the youth's stay at the treatment program. After discharge, Northern's specializ- ed substance abuse staff will provide follow-up and aftercare for the adolescent and family. Referrals to New Directions must go through Northern Wyoming Mental Health Center. Parents, schools, judges, physicians, law enforce- ment, agencies, etc., must con- tact the local designated agency in order to arrange screening of any possible teenagers for treat- ment. The program in Casper is located in a beautiful facility with a very homelike atmos- phere. The staff there is com- prises of mental health professionals, substance abuse professionals and medical/ psychiatric consultants. The clients are assisted in choosing positive paths for their lives through individual counseling, group therapy, family counsel- ing and education. In addition to the above, the program in- corporates Alcoholics Anony- mous, Narcotics Anonymous, psychiatric evaluation, activities therapy, physical exercise, relaxation therapy, and in- house education. The prograrn last 45-60 days. This service is available to all Wyoming teenagers since it is operated on a sliding fee scale based on a family's annum income, as with all Wyoming community mental Health pro- grams. The fees range from as low as $1.00 per day to as high as $75.00 per day. Many private treatment facilities charge up to $500.00 a day, so this is a badly needed concept in Wyoming. For more information on any of the above services contact Northern Wyoming Mental Health Center at 283-3636. water spilled into the northeast corner of the gym "hnd caused some cupping and bending of boards in the floor.
